The European Research Network for Sustainable Technologies (ERNST) provides a forum for maximising the profit from European projects by establishing contacts to exploit synergies and by providing help to exploit the results. In these 3 years 50 European research projects participated in ERNST, exchanging ideas as well as know-how and initiated new co operations.
These projects have been split up into different clusters:

  • Modelling, Simulation and Control of Production Processes
  • Instrumentation and Sensors
  • Catalysis
  • Membranes and Waste Water treatment

The main objectives archived over a period of three years are as follows:

  • To provide a European forum for the development, dissemination and exchange of scientific and technological knowledge and ideas relating to all aspects of the European process industries: research, development, exploitation, production, environmental aspects
  • To increase synergy between projects with a common industrial or technological strategic objective and to accelerate dissemination and exploitation of results.
  • To enhance the value of the Community's investments through knowledgeable and helpful monitoring of the projects including assessment of the progress of the work according to the work programme.
  • To provide a scientific, technological information interface between industry and the regulatory authorities with respect to the issues raised by the pursuit of sustainable (industrial) development.
  • To provide a consultancy to relevant EU and Member States R&TD Programme planners on opportunities for improving synergy and co-ordination of funding activities and on strategic research needs.
